Leanda Cave

Leanda Cave:

Little Introduction needed for Leanda:

There is no dispute that Leanda Cave has established herself as among the best in our sport. Her performance in 2011, which included a podium finish at the Ironman world championship, winning Ironman Arizona and Wildflower and multiple 70.3 wins leaves no doubt that the prolific swim/bike speedster from Louth England is a force to be reckoned with at any distance. Cave has won the prestigious Escape from Alcatraz 3 times and has been crowned both ITU short course World Champion and ITU long course World Champion – a feat accomplished by only a select few women.

Leanda’s career at a professional triathlete started back in 1994 and she has since transformed herself from a short course specialist to a potential Ironman Champion. Leanda is known for having one of the best swim/bike one-two punches in the sport and her improving run makes her a legitimate threat at any distance.
